A &quot;Funeral Peal&quot; For Beau Nash</strong><br />
+
-
Richard &quot;Beau&quot; Nash, &quot;Master of the Ceremonies in this City&quot;, died 150 years ago this year. He was buried in the Abbey on Thursday 17th February, with much pomp. That day, to quote from &quot;Felix Farley's Bristol Journal&quot; of Sat 21 Feb 1761, &quot;the Ringers (to shew their Gratitude and Respect to their worth Benefactor, rung (sic) a Funeral Peal of Grandsire Triples, consisting of 1,260 Changes; the Clappers of the Bells being muffled on one side&quot;.</p>

  <p style="border-collapse: collapse; font-family: arial, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; ">And with good reason, for Nash had encouraged paid ringing for special occasions. This included the well-known custom of the Abbey bells being rung to welcome visitors, and not just the great and good:</p>

  <blockquote>

-
&quot;I thought like a fool that they only would ring<br />
+
-
For a wedding, or judge, or the birth of a king<br />
+
-
But I found 'twas for me that the good-natured people<br />
+
-
Rang so hard that I thought they would pull down the steeple<br />
+
-
So I pulled out my purse, as I hate to be shabby,<br />
+
-
And paid all the men as they came from the Abbey ...&quot;
